Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul)
started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the
possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up (and sometimes other modular
set-ups) and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori
compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of
moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #8 was recorded and mixed between february 2019 and september 2021 using the Neutron analog synthesizer as only sound source.
Methodology step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences. step (2) Stopping tweaking, then recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up. step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times. step
(4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori
compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization,
panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
